2016 Honda Pilot Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™

Buyers of the 2016 Pilot EX-L with navigation and above trims will be met with a new, Garmin-based navigation system* with stunning graphics and simplified functionality. A new, simplified voice-recognition system has also been implemented to make finding destinations, addresses, and businesses easier than ever before. This video will discuss some of the features and benefits of the new system and how to use them.

*The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ is available on EX-L models and standard on Touring models in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. (FM Traffic service only available in the United States, except Alaska.) Please see your Honda dealer for details.

2016 Honda Pilot Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)

This video will discuss a feature available for the first time on any Honda—the driver-assistive Road Departure Mitigation System*. It helps to ensure the Pilot only leaves the pavement when you want it to. If your vehicle drifts too close to detected lane markings while driving between 45 and 90 miles per hour without a turn signal activated, the system alerts you with a visual lane-departure warning in the Multi-Information Display (MID), and applies steering torque to help keep the vehicle in the detected lane when you start to cross over the lane line or road edge. And if the system determines that steering input is insufficient to keep the vehicle on the roadway, it may apply braking to help keep it from departing.

*Road Departure Mitigation only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use and can apply mild steering torque to assist the driver in maintaining proper lane position and/or brake pressure to slow the vehicle’s departure from a detected lane. Road Departure Mitigation may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

2016 Honda Pilot Cross Traffic Monitor

This video will describe a new driver-assistive feature exclusive to the Pilot Elite trim—the cross traffic monitor*. It can come in very handy when backing out of a parking spot in a crowded parking lot or when backing out of a driveway onto a busy street. When in reverse gear with the multi-angle rearview camera in any viewing mode, the driver is alerted to a detected vehicle with an audio alert and amber arrows on the vehicle’s rearview camera display. The side-to-side warning distance extends up to about 82 feet from each side of the rear of the vehicle.

*Always visually confirm that it is safe to drive before backing up, as the rearview camera and cross traffic monitor may not provide complete information about conditions at the rear of your vehicle. Monitor cannot detect all objects behind or to the side of a vehicle and may not detect a given object; system accuracy will vary based on weather, size of object, and speed. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
